Sick of being sick.

Ended up in hospital again this week.
It was only an overnight stay but was as unwelcome as ever.
I have Crohns Disease. If you have never heard of it, its a fairly unpleasant bowel disorder which i've had for about the last 20 years. NOT to be confused at all with Irritable Bowel Syndrome which is a walk in the park compared to CD. They are often confused which is pretty annoying.
Anyway, there i was on Thursday having a resonably good day. Made the mistake of eating (as you do), and ended up in Hospital. Lots of vomiting and bowel spasms later.
Don't think i'll eat Tescos chicken soup again...ever!
Its getting a bit worrying though lately. This is the 3rd semi serious attack i've had in as many weeks.
Living alone and being sick is not recommended. There is nothing more depressing than puking into a basin at 4 in the morning and having no one about to help.
The worst is that i suppose i'll have to go back to work on Monday.
What joy!!!
